    You could call it Dingle, after the place in Ireland

    The Lab is gorgeous, but I'd say pick the setter, so you don't feel like you're replacing your first dog. The setter is GORGEOUS as well.
    As I'm not Irish, I can't speak Gaelic but if you wanted an Irish name, then maybe you could translate some of these suggestions (I personally like Hazel, Whiskey and strangely, Thor...) into Gaelic!
    Right, I think I've found the prefect name for any dog, let alone an Irish one...'Cuchulainn'. I took a look at my mantlepiece and saw the statue of Cuchulainn. He is a mythical Irish warrior. His name was Setanta. He was invited to a feast at the metalsmith, Culann's house. But when he entered Culann's yard, Culann's guard dog attacked Setanta who then killed the dog. Setanta offered to raise a new dog for Culann and until the dog was ready, Setanta would gaurd the house himself. He was given the name Cuchulainn from then on which when translated to english is 'Culanns Hound'

    Let me know if I'm making a mistake.lol

    I'm having problems deciding on an Irish setter and a brown lab. I had a brown lab before, but it died last year.


    Any ideas on names for either?

    Well I personally think that proper names work best. So you can't call a dog Lucky or anything generic like that.

    For example, our last 2 dogs have been called Barney and Dudley, both proper names and they just seem to fit.

    It'd be a sight to see when you call out to your dog.

    What about Cuchulainn? for the setter anyway. read the post before yours if you haven't seen it. I think it would fit.

    I prefer Irish Setters - I like their silly ears. Call him Cú Chulainn.
